Committed Everyday To Deny Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar


People,
Are committed everyday to deny...
What they do to abuse and who,
When, where and why!

People,
Are committed everyday to deny...
What they create to initiate,
With a hiding to erase their lies.

Why do backstabbers become offended,
When their cloak and dagger actions...
Begin with a doing they pretend defends.

People,
Are committed everyday to deny...
What they do to abuse and who,
When, where and why!

The rise of crimes aren't hard to find.
But the people,
Are committed everyday to deny...
A participating that eliminates,
The taste for honesty and what it takes.

But the people,
Are committed everyday to deny...
What they do to abuse and who,
When, where and why!

Christians are quick to identify sins!
And with a doing to prove them done.
Yet they don't see they are hypocrites,
Believing their misdeeds will fade away...
The moment they get on their knees to pray!

People,
Are committed everyday to deny!

Why do backstabbers become offended,
When their cloak and dagger actions...
Begin with a doing they pretend defends.

People,
Are committed everyday to deny...
What they create to initiate,
With a hiding to erase their lies.

People,
Are committed everyday to deny...
What they do to abuse and who,
When, where and why!

We, the people,
Are committed everyday to deny...
We can live our lives dismissing truth.
And people,
Are committed everyday to deny...
Truth is not a pursuit.
And it can be refused as a choice to choose.

OH yes, the people,
Are committed everyday to deny...
They live lives without truth.
And people,
Are committed everyday to deny...
Truth shouldn't be a pursuit.
And it can be refused as a choice to choose.
Yes the people...
Are committed everyday to deny!

People,
Are committed everyday to deny,
A needing of some mental health.
That's more needed than the wish for wealth.

People,
Are committed everyday to deny,
A needing of some mental health.
More needed than the wish for wealth.

And this,
The people...
Are committed everyday to deny!

And this,
The people...
Are committed everyday to deny!
